ESPN pundit Gabriele Marcotti is confident that Antonio Conte won’t be given the funds he wants to make signings in January, the Express reports.
Conte’s future at Chelsea has been up in the air as it’s been a somewhat frustrating season for the Italian. However, the Blues are third in the Premier League and have secured qualification for the knockouts of the Champions League.
As per the Express, Conte’s countryman Marcotti doesn’t think the 48-year-old will be given the funds he desires to add to the squad.
Marcotti is quoted by the Express saying:
“There’s still going to be some questions whether Antonio Conte returns next season, so I don’t see them committing money this January.”
Abramovich will do what he thinks his best for Chelsea
No matter who is at the Chelsea helm, Abramovich will have funds available for his club to sign players.
We could still see a continuation of what was an eventful summer transfer deadline day for the champions.
